Why do we use pronouns? What are pronouns?

We use pronouns to be lazy. Pronouns help with shortening words so we don't have to say the whole thing. Pronouns are words we use to make talking, writing, etc easier. If I were to say" Joe is nice." When a follow up statement is made the person could say" Yeah he is really nice." The person then wouldn't have to say his name. Without pronouns people would do a lot of writing, talking, etc.

Definite and Indefinite numeral pronouns
